Wilmette and the suburban whirl

William B. Robinson

This is the first time I have looked for/ at this photo [of the bank]. Only a few years after this was taken I was old enough to pull myself up to the window sill at the third window to the right (north of the corner) and tap on the glass and wave at my dad, WB Robinson Jr., who was Vice-President. Lots of great memories of hanging around there, mostly after closing hours as I couldn't interfere with customers during business.

This is my Grandpa who I loved but did not live near. So thank you for capturing these moments.

I knew Austin Zimmerman, first as our library board attorney. It was not long before we became very good personal friends and he was a great mentor to me in many things. Because of him I love opera. I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with him. I have missed him everyday since he passed away. You cannot imagine how grateful I am, that thanks to you, I am able to hear his voice again.

Thank you so much for taking the time to record these wonderful events over the years and making them public for all to enjoy. Rhea Saul Adler was my dear sweet Grandmother. It is so nice to hear her voice again after all these years.

The Wilmette local history collections and news are a prime example of how libraries can leverage simple technology to reach beyond their boundaries and reach a global audience. We at ODW watch the Wilmette Public library's progress with great satisfaction! Well done and do carry on!
